Theme Russe; String Quartets By Ludwig Van Beethov
Catalog: GEN 21752
Format: COMPACT DISC
The Eliot Quartet has already been showered with prizes, including awards at the German Music Competition, the Mozart Competition in Salzburg, and the Melbourne Competition. Its new GENUIN release presents two milestones of the string quartet repertoire: Ludwig van Beethoven's Razumovsky Quartet, Op. 59 no. 1, and Sergei Prokofiev's thrilling Second Quartet. Both works deal with East European folklore, and the four musicians bring out their melodic colors and rhythmic peculiarities with great accuracy and homogeneity of sound.
